Absolutely Snow

Snow falls
before the leaves
completely do,
but everything
has fallen in
this world including
me and you
and all the world—
completely true.

The snow collects
a little on
the ground creating
something white—
a such a something
something that
is absolutely

Such snow won’t last
a day before
it melts away
becoming kin
to someone whose
inherent lasting
has dissolved
in such a way.
